Life of ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá

Through stories of life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, a careful study of His actions and frequent meditation on His Talks and Writings we can better understand the transformative power of the Revelation of Bahá’u’lláh.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá affirmed time and again that He was a “herald of peace and reconciliation”, “an advocate of the oneness of humanity”, and an agent calling humanity to the “Kingdom of God”.

He was the Embodiment of what a Bahá’í (follower of His Father’s teachings) should be, serving as a model for all of humanity.

Remembering ‘Abdu’l-Bahá Stories

The Covenant

The Covenant is an answer to the question of religious succession that has been critical to all Faiths.

Through ‘Abdu’l-Bahá a Center of the Covenant, Bahá’u’lláh diffused His message of hope and universal peace to every corner of the world. This Covenant was the instrument that ensured the unity of the Bahá’í community and preserved the integrity of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings. Without ‘Abdu’l-Bahá as its Centre, the enormous creative power of Bahá’u’lláh’s Revelation could not have been transmitted to humanity, nor its significance fully comprehended.

Year of Action

This momentous year we be celebrated by individuals and communities all over the world.

Many communities will not passivitly observe this anniversary but use it as a period to galvanize the ongoing efforts of community building already underway throughout the World.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá was the chief promoter of unity, the fundamental principle of the teachings of Bahá’u’lláh. Bahá’ís and there friends continue to follow the pattern of service He exemplified as of the Faith’s spirit and the embodiment of His Father’s Teachings. Most Bahá’í community activities—prayer gatherings, study groups, activities for children and teens—are open to all and take place in homes and community centers across the United States.
